Yesterday, April 23rd both Maggie and Mimi gave birth to rams.
What’s interesting about these two births is . . .well a couple things.
Maggie and Mimi just happen to be the first lambs born at PTF! They were also the first ewes born at PTF and they were the first twins born at PTF. So when Maggie decided yesterday (9:30 am) to give birth to her first baby, Mimi wasn’t going to be out done, so she proceeded to give birth (5:00 pm) to her first baby. And of course I already told you that they both gave birth to baby boys. We named them Savory and Salt & Pepper.
So far this lambing season we have had four of our five ewes give birth and two of those four have twined. We have received one ewe and five “fence bangers” (rams)!!
